About this title
Helps you learn about the bucking horses, lively livestock, and daring riders of the rodeo world. This book offers information about roping, riding, racing, wrestling, and more. It lets you discover the breeds of rodeo horses, how riders handle and care for their animals, and how cattle herding became a rough-and-tumble sport.From Booklist:
A love of horses is a common enough affliction among children, though many may be surprised that there are so many ways to gad about on horseback. The Horsing Around series, with plenty of action photos and a layout that evokes the grainy woods of stables and barns, details the different equipment, breeds, techniques, and competitions associated with each corner of the equestrian world. A definite notch up on the adrenaline scale, the always crowd-pleasing bucking broncs get the spotlight in Rodeo, though the book nicely conveys that there’s more to the show than just holding on for dear life. Each book ends with a brief sketch of famous horses and riders and a collection of historical tidbits to enhance readers’ familiarity with the sport. Parents may have appreciated some information on how a love of horses can put a serious dent in the checking account, but this series is nonetheless an invaluable resource for introducing aspiring riders to the distinct substrata of the equestrian world. Grades 3-5. --Ian Chipman
